    (O) While I was sleeping, my father came back home. --->這是簡單式while進行式(正常的用法)

    (X) While my father came back home, I was sleeping.--->怪怪的,while通常指一段時間(during that time)

    (X) I will see her until she apologizes. --->不通,翻起來很怪.

    (O) I won't see her until she apologizes. -->正常的用法,意指在她沒道歉之前我是不會見她的.

    以下資料擷取自敦煌書局的討論區:

    1、簡單式 when/while 簡單式(常用 when)

    Tom was my best friend when (while) I was in primery school.

    2、進行式 when 簡單式

    I was taking a bath when he got home.

    3、簡單式 while 進行式

    Jane was home while I was jogging in the park.

    4、進行式 when / while 進行式(常用 while)

    Pete was watching TV while (when) Chris was washing dishes.

    所以很多文法書都會強調:

    when+簡單式,while+進行式。

    以你想強調的人作主要子句的主詞

    強調父親:

    While I was sleeping, my father came back home.

    強調我:

    While my father came back home, I was sleeping.

    I won't see her until she apologizes. 這句才是對的

    中文是"我將不與她見面,直到她道歉為止(才和她見面)"

    I will see her until she apologizes.

    的中文是"我和她見面直到她道歉才不和她相見"

    not...until... 是"直到…才"

    是差不多的

    但While I was sleeping, my father came back home.&I won't see her until she apologizes.比較恰當
